Hello everyone! Hope you all are having a good day, and keeping cool!
Last week we camped in our motor home in Northern Michigan, in one of our very favorite campgrounds in the state. The sites are huge, very private, and wooded, there are lots of wonderful hiking trails in the woods, and stairs that lead to a gorgeous white sandy beach on Grand Traverse Bay. No internet connection for an entire week, though (phooey!)!!! Now that is what I call roughing it:)!
It was a nice and relaxing week, and we even got a welcome break from the heat, til the last two days.
I just love this view of the beach, from the top of the stairs!
One afternoon, we drove to the Old Mission Peninsula and did a bit of wine tasting. This adorable little school house, dating from the late 1800's, is home to a neat winery. It even has it's original blackboards and hardwood floors! You may be surprised to know that our state has many amazing, award winning wineries, that would rival any that we've visited in Sonoma and Napa Valley.
We took our bikes, and of course Emily's little cart!
As a puppy, she hated riding in the cart, and would always try and chew her way out. Now that she is considered a "senior", she's finally realized that it's fun, and a great way to catch a breeze!
Nothing beats watching the sunset over Lake Michigan. It was breathtaking!
I've got a few more pictures of our trip that I'll share with you later this week.
So now it's back to heat and humidity, and trying to keep my poor plants and flowers watered!
Enjoy your week!
